Advice for new owners

We have compiled a guide for new owners on ways to help your rescue dog settle into their new home. The guide covers the following:

  • Being patient with your rescue dog as it can take 2-4 weeks for them to adjust to the major life change of moving to a new place and getting to know new people.
  • Introductions to other pets in the home
  • Introduction to the human family members
  • Importance of routine and consistency
  • Socialisation and training
